I'm re-reading The Erotic World of Peter de Rome, his fantastic autobiography, and realized I never posted this movie trailer. The film's soundtrack does not use the Pink Floyd music that you will hear here, but I think it gives the approriate feel, nonetheless. This trailer also shows me that my Bijou Video copy of the video is another censored version; this trailer clearly shows that the original film had watersports in one scene, as well as a zucchini and a baseball bat used in another sex scene. Perhaps one of the trippiest films to come from the folks at Hand In Hand (deRome, Jack Deveau, Bob Alvarez), it's about a priest who has doubts about his calling, and takes a sabbatical from his religious duties, plunging himself into a world of gay sex and drugs (mushrooms). Based on a short story by Edgar Allen Poe, I have yet to discover which story it is. I would KILL for an unedited, original copy of this film.
